Wyong Drama Group will proudly present one of Shakespeare's greatest plays, 

The Tempest

at Wyong Grove Theatre between 
Friday May 3 and Saturday May 11, 2019. 

Andy Kabanoff and Alexandra Mitchell

Smashed by a storm at sea, washed up onto a strange island peopled by 
spirits and a long-deposed King, a group of people are put through tests to gauge their worth and determine whether 
they deserve condemnation or forgiveness. 

Shakespeare's final play is a masterpiece of the spirit. 

Survivor – The Tempest.

MUSICIAN M or F

Notes: Some male roles may be given to female actors. Ariel is traditionally male but we will go
with a female Ariel. Stephano and Trinculo may also be female; so might Gonzalo . . .

The Boatswain will probably be played by Caliban.

Iris, Ceres, Juno and the musician will also be spirits of the island and will appear often, at the
times they are described in the script and at other times. Our production will play up the mystical elements
of the play and will use creative movement / dance and music played live on drums and on the sound board
of a piano which will be stripped of its shell.

The role of Adrian, if we keep it, will probably be played by the musician. The role of Francisco
will be cut.
